Astro Arugula: A spicy, cold-hardy, salad green producing many leaves for ";cut and come again"; harvest. Long, dark green leaves with deeply cut lobes are very nutritious.
When and Where to Plant: Hardy Annual. Sow seeds as soon as soil can be worked. Transplanting is not recommended. Sow in 2-4"; wide bands at ~30 sds/ft, in rows 8-10"; apart. Optimal soil temp for germination is between 45-70°F. Harvest leaves when they are 2-4"; tall for baby leaf or at desired size. Cut leaves 1"; above soil line to allow for re-growth.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
